Lighthouses were built to be seen from the water and Maine Maritime Museum offers you the chance to see up to ten of Maine’s finest lighthouses the way they were meant to be seen!  

On this cruise you will see all the lighthouses along the Kennebec Historic Waterway and through Boothbay Harbor.  Keep your camera ready to see:

  • Doubling Point Lighthouse - Built in 1898, it is a white octagonal tower placed on the upper end of Fiddler’s Reach.
  • Kennebec Range Lights - A unique set of two beacon towers designed to help ships maneuver through a difficult bend of the river.
  • Squirrel Point Lighthouse - A small, white wooden tower with a small room and attached walkway.  Built in 1898.
  • Perkins Island Lighthouse - A white, wooden octagonal tower, with the keeper’s house, barn and stone bell tower.
  • Pond Island Lighthouse - A white conical tower near the mouth of the Kennebec River.  No other buildings remain on Pond Island.
  • Seguin Island Lighthouse - Located 2 miles south of the mouth of the Kennebec River, the tower is only 53 feet tall.
  • The Cuckolds Lighthouse - Originally only a fog signal, the light protects the heavy boat traffic into Boothbay Harbor.
  • Ram Island Lighthouse - This lighthouse marks Fisherman Island Passage.
  • Burnt Island Lighthouse - Situated 1 mile outside of Boothbay Harbor, this lighthouse is now a Maine state-owned educational facility.  
  • Hendricks Head Lighthouse - Now privately owned, this lighthouse is on the Sheepscot River in Southport.

This cruise is approximately 4 hours long. Passengers will remain on the boat for the length of the cruise. The Merrymeeting's professionally trained crew provides fascinating narration and a safe, comfortable cruise. We're pleased to offer a snack bar onboard with beer, wine, soda and light snacks.
